The Association of LGBTQ Journalists, NLGJA, today recognized two FUSION reports with Excellence in Journalism Awards.
The report “Willing and Able,” which examined the challenges transgender women face when looking for work, won the Excellence in Digital Video Award.
The documentary “No League of Their Own” won the award for Excellence in Health or Fitness Coverage. Through professional voices and personal storytelling, this FUSION TV special examined the question ‘Do transgender athletes actually have a competitive advantage?’
“We are thrilled each year by the work that is nominated for NLGJA’s Excellence in Journalism Awards and this year was no different. All of the award recipients are doing their fair share to advance NLGJA’s mission of promoting fair and accurate LGBTQ coverage, and it is our privilege to recognize their outstanding work.” — NLGJA President Jen Christensen
The awards will be presented throughout the NLGJA National Convention September 7-10 in Philadelphia. See the full list of winners here.
